What i saw today

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hi all I saw this at 12:25pm ish Greek time today 10:25am UK time
40mm eyepiece on a Lunt LS 35mm Ha scope.

This is a rubbish drawing I did of it, and is orientated as seen through my eyepiece


Image

Main features are 3 sunspots in the disk and the prominence below at around 5 o'clock, On what would be equator centre line to the right is what looked like a large flare.. if that's the right description, I rotated eyepiece and it didn't move so it was/is a real feature.......other stuff on disk rim is due to drawing round an uneven bottle top to make the disk :lol:
